chatting with newt gingrich who gave us a very frank deconstruction on why mitt romney lost the election. since then he's been telling his party it's going to take some tough medicine to realign with the american people. want to welcome back the former presidential candidate along with his wife calista. you both have books out. newt gingrich's book is called "victory at yorktown" and this is a historical novel so it's fictional account but it's based on historical facts. >> based on what actually happened. >> and callista's got a book called "land of the pilgrims' pride." my kids would love this. walk-through of the 13 original colonies and what brought them to be. we're going to keep you around for a bit this morning. i want to talk about the fiscal cliff. because 48 days and counting, kind of like this big tic toc, tic toc going. how likely do you think that there will be compromise? anybody can jump in. >> i think the odds are fairly high they will muddle through in some form. i just think the pressures will be great enough, they'll feel they can't go home without doing something. it
you a question about when we heard a little bit about governor romney explaining to his donors why he lost one of the things he's talking about is gifts and we heard from governor jindal coming out very harshly about that also susan martinez as well the gifts include young people get a gift of forgiveness of their college loans and obama care, for college age women get free contraceptives, minorities get obama care. latinos get amnesty for the children of latinos. all these, you know, sort of these gifts that he talked about, here's what governor jindal said, about that. i'm going to play that first. >> this is not where the republican party needs to go. look, we want -- if you want voters to like you the first thing you've got to do is to like them first. and it's certainly not helpful to tell voters that you think their votes were bought. that's not a way to show them that you respect them, you like them. we need to stop talking down to voters. >> so what do you make of that? do you agree with what governor jindal is saying? do you think that governor romney is correct that and that
. jindal's been critical of mitt romney and the republicans since they lost the election. he says the way to start winning majorities is by not insulting the voter. >> i think we can be respectful of those that disagree with us. we don't need to demonize those that disagree with us. we need to respect the fact that others have come to different conclusions based o on their own sincerely held beliefs. we don't need so say stupid things. we had candidates in indiana and missouri that said stupid things that not only hurt themselves but hurt the republican party across the board. >> since bobby jindal brought it up, let's talk about that with our panel here. >> let's go there. >> as the ranking member on the table here, representative diane heyworth, what do you make of what bobby jindal said there? >> i completely agree with him that it's crucial for republicans to focus on the issues that all americans can share as concerns. to me that means respecting what people do in their personal lives as being the province of the individual citizen and thinking very carefully together about how we ac
. >> we can do that. >> -- what loopholes? >> well, there's a host of them out there. isn't it? romney said during the campaign there's so many out there. i want the president to suggest some, as well. one of the things that -- >> mortgage deductions? >> maybe there should be some sort of cap to the total number of deductions -- >> child tax credit? >> there are all sorts of -- there's no limit on the ones that are out there. there are literally thousands of these that are out there. some are bigger than others but we have to get responsible -- >> raise taxes for people who are making $250,000-plus? >> that's not something i think that we should be doing. i don't believe we should be increasing the tax rate. i like what speaker boehner said and said, look, let's work on closing these loopholes and deductions. that is common ground. there's no reason why -- >> that would raise taxes on people. this is where you get this fight in the republican party. because if your taxes go up but your tax rate doesn't go up, is that a sell republicans can live with? >> it depends how it's mixed up. we
the presidency. our exit polls lay out some reasons. this one shows mitt romney winning the white vote while african-americans, latinos, asians all broke for president obama in a big way. right after the election, paul ryan spoke about losing the race because of urban voters. take a look. >> the polling we had, the numbers we were looking at looked like we stood a pretty good chance of winning. so when the numbers came in, going the other direction, when we see the kind of turnout that was occurring in urban areas, which were fairly unprecedented, it did come as a shock. those are the kind of losses, that catch you by surprise. >> co-founder of sun pac, conservative outreach program for the hispanic community jeb bush jr. >> thanks for having me. >> my pleasure. certainly the president won paul ryan's own district, which is white and suburban, won eric cantore's own district, white and suburban. what do you think is your reason ultimately for why the gop lost? >> i think as it relates to our our ban, latino and hispanic districts, we didn't get the message out. they had a better message tas
poll, dropped out and many said months later might have been a real challenger to mitt romney. and who won the iowa straw poll? >> michele bachmann won. >> dropped out not long after that. >> she's an iowa native though so she had an edge this time around. >> exactly. >> it was a contest -- >> iowa straw poll is great. >> why? >> i work for senator tom harkin from iowa and democrats in iowa love the straw poll. it's a good burst of energy in iowa. iowa is a great political town. >> give me a good reason. >> gives everybody an early look at what's out there and gives us something to talk about. it gives political reporters something to report on. >> every single -- >> it's a very positive thing. >> initially, of course, it was all about the idea of the straw poll was it was an early indicator of how much organizational strength you have. right? but i do feel like today, in today's day and age, not so much. it really -- >> why is it no longer an indicator? >> look at michele bachmann. perfect example. she did very well at the beginning and she got people in and then she dropped out the d
